Sarah Mangold was born in Omaha, Nebraska, and raised in Kansas and Oklahoma. She received a BA from the University of Oklahoma and an MFA from San Francisco State University.
Mangold is the author of Giraffes of Devotion (Kore Press, 2016), Electrical Theories of Femininity (Black Radish Books, 2015), and Household Mechanics (New Issues, 2002), which was selected by C. D. Wright for the New Issues Poetry Prize.
In the foreword to Household Mechanics, Wright describes the book as “a disquieting review of indirect disclosures, internal churnings, and palpable notions, subjected to a tense and skeletal language.”
Mangold is the recipient of a fellowship from the National Endowment for the Arts and a grant from the Seattle Arts Commission. She lives in Seattle, Washington.
